Introduction to Multimedia Networks Design How-To 8/28/1998 Post a comment Multimedia Networks is a brief overview of the videoconferencing origins and the current issues facing the multimedia and networking industries. The current focus on bringing multimedia communications to the LAN and tying endpoints via the WAN is stressing all elements of design, including workstations, multimedia subsystems, networking components, software, and standards. This overview takes a communications slant at the problem and highlights some of the industry activities and technical direc
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
